Deerwood Creek Community in Etobicoke

Welcome to Deerwood Creek

Deerwood Creek Community, home to 160 people, sits beside Humberwood Park flanking the nearby Humber River. The community’s name was inspired by local deer that visit the backyard during the winter; a lengthy walking and bicycle path nearby offers great views of surrounding nature. Vital connections among those living, working, and visiting here give Deerwood Creek its distinctive “homey” feel – a place where you can enjoy a rich variety of programs and activities including access to two gym rooms, a Cyber Seniors intergenerational program to help you get online, and cuddles with the community’s pets.
